The New York Stock Exchange is fluctuating on Tuesday evening, after a sharp fall on Monday.
The picture was mixed for the three major indices on Wall Street on Tuesday afternoon, but now stocks are pointing lower.
This is what it looks like around 6:40 PM:
- The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.39 percent
- The Nasdaq Technology Index rose 0.15 percent
- The broad S&P 500 index fell 0.1 percent
The S&P 500 and Dow Jones on Monday had their worst trading day in nearly two months. The Nasdaq also fell significantly.
Eric Bruce, chief strategist at Nordea, thinks the 10-year US government bond rate, which crept on Monday to more than three per cent, could explain part of the stock market Monday. “The Ten-Year-Old Girl” is about the same on a Tuesday afternoon.
The ten-year-old is often referred to as “the most important in the world” because it influences interest rates and financial markets around the world. US 10-year bonds are the most popular government bonds in the world, and are considered a virtually risk-free investment due to the low probability of US bankruptcy.
Higher long-term interest rates are often a negative for tech companies, because they are priced based on future earnings, and higher interest rates make promises of future earnings less valuable. Therefore, the ten-year-old and the Nasdaq often move in the opposite direction.

Waiting for an important letter
The eyes of many investors are now focused on what will happen in the small town of Jackson, Wyoming towards the end of the week.
Central Bank Governor Jerome Powell will speak there on Friday, and there is great enthusiasm about the signals he will give.
Following the comments of several central bank representatives, many market participants believe that the central bank will continue to tighten the sluggish economy with more rate hikes.
However, some analysts see the possibility that Fed Chairman Powell will surprise and deliver a “relaxing” speech, according to Bloomberg.
– Right now, global sentiment is frightening and unstable, said Richard Hunter, head of marketing at Interactive Investor, according to Bloomberg.
He adds that there is little reason to be optimistic on the near horizon, as no rays of economic light have properly settled into the market.
